Saoirse Ronan Wows In Fierce One-Sleeved Black Gown At Golden Globes

Ronan nabbed the prize for best actress in a musical or comedy earlier in the night.

Ronan and Gerwig both expressed their solidarity with those experiencing inequality, sexual harassment and assault in the workplace by donning all-black looks to the Golden Globes as part of the Time's Up movement.

"Lady Bird", a coming-of-age tale about a teenage girl and her fractured but endearing relationship with her mother, won the Golden Globe award for best comedy/musical film on Sunday.


Gerwig was shut out of the best director category.

London-Irish filmmaker McDonagh also won the Best Screenplay award for his searing study of grief, with two of his stars, Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell, winning Best Actress - Drama and Best Supporting Actor respectively for their performances. Many in the industry believe that Gerwig missed a well-deserved nomination in the director category at the Globes, which was won by Guillermo del Toro for "The Shape of Water". "So, hi! I have no time at all to say thank you but I just want to say how inspirational it is to be in this room tonight".

Accepting the award, Saoirse said: "My mom's on FaceTime over there on someone's phone. Hi!"


"If the movie wins, and even me getting [this award], that's her's", Ronan insisted.

The film, written and directed by Greta Gerwig, beat out "The Disaster Artist", "The Greatest Showman", "Get Out" and "I, Tonya".
